Our Tropical Possessions in Malayan India
John Cameron


At the time this book was originally published in 1865, Cameron was the editor of the Straits Times in Singapore. He set out to demonstrate the importance of the colony to Britain, so most of the book is devoted to describing the island, its people and activities some 50 years after the arrival of the British East India Company there. There are also sections on Penang and Melaka. Very Good Hardback. Reprint. 408 pages with an introduction by Wang Gungwu and 7 aquatint and colour plates.
